Do you think that I should update this or are there battery or other stability issues with 4.4.2

go ahead with the update.

-Just a side note, I know you don't wish to unlock or s-off but if you ever wants to s-off, it will become harder with each ota updates (s-off exploit are patched with OTA). So if you want to s-off, do it now it will be easier. If you dont want S-OFF, proceed with the update.

and check updates again after applying this one, you'll probably get prompted to install 1 or 2 more

So with S-off, i can flash any RUU, even if I want to downgrade? Also can i do it without unlocking the bootloader.

If so, can you direct me towards the procedure?

yes you can flash any RUU with s-off: signed ruu, decrypted ruu, lower/higher version, other version ruu (require to change CID/MID)

you will need to unlock bootloader to s-off
  1. unlock bootloader
  2. flash twrp recovery
  3. root
  4. flash an unsecured kernel or flash a custom rom pre-rooted that comes with an unsecured kernel
  5. s-off using rumrunner
With s-off, you can set back to bootloader to LOCKED (not relocked) like if it was never unlocked and you can remove the TAMPERED flag from bootloader.
